Giant Foil Balloon Four Ways

by Jo Williams June 21, 2017

I love balloons, I love the simplicity of them and I love the reaction they get from people but what I love most is how creative you can be with such a simple and inexpensive object.

Recently I came across a blog post from one of my favourite blogs StudioDIY where they had cleverly created emojis using balloons, I was totally inspired and it got me thinking how easily a balloon can be transformed using a little imagination and a small amount of glue dots! So I grabbed a giant Pink Heart Balloon and I was off...

We ordered a bespoke balloon arch kit for our wedding ceremony and it was perfect! Easy to use and put together and fantastic quality. I will certainly be ordering with you again in the future.

Just what I was looking for!!

These acrylic pyramids come apart so you can fill them. I put silver, black and gold beads in mine. A bit tricky to place them together, but after a few tries I figured out a way. They are too light and I have doubts that it will stay in place using 4 regular size balloons. So I added a large washer inside for added weight. These turned out beautiful. A great addition to my table decorations.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so glad that you loved these unusual weights, thank you for the idea to add a washer for weight - great tip! Your review is very much appreciated, every review helps us significantly in evaluating and tweaking our products and service. We hope that you enjoy a wonderful celebration. Best regards, Jo

Really lovely quality & came in a lovely box. Arrived within 2 days of purchasing them.


Wonderful balloon arch kit! An excellent range of really good quality balloons! The balloon arch kit lets you mix colours in both the larger and smaller sizes, which was perfect in creating a green and grey balloon arch for a baby shower. The instructions provided with the kit were very helpful especially given that I had never made a balloon arch before! This was exactly what I needed for the event, 100% would recommend!

Lovely balloon for 1st birthday

Bought this balloon for my daughter's 1st birthday and couldn't be happier. It's absolutely gorgeous and still floating over a week later. Very pleased with my purchase.
